What can we learn from looking at Guy Duguay’s 5 portraits d’artiste: Marc Paulin?

Let’s look

Take your time. Look carefully. Where do your eyes go first? Then where? Take in as many details as you can.

Let’s describe

What time of day is it?  It is a portrait, but what do they visual elements in the background tell us about the work?  How would you describe the atmosphere in the painting? What visual elements support your ideas?

Encourage students to ask questions. What visual elements in the artwork prompt the questions asked?

Let’s imagine

Imagine you turn on your computer or television and this image comes on the screen to convey a very important message to you.  What would that message be?  And why?
